*Managing a caseload of claims bought against the Council, these will consist of a varied range of claims including Motor, Housing, Property and Theft/Damage and Casualty Claims.
*Managing a caseload of defendant claims
*Investigation of each claim thoroughly, this will involve interviewing the claimant alongside their legal representative
*Ensuring all delegated claims work conforms to the minimum objectives set out in the Service and Quality Standards of the Insurance Section and to the relevant Civil Rules and Protocols
*To assess liability using case law and past experience and identify the best course of action


Essential Experience:
*At least 2 years' experience as a Litigation Executive, preferably in Civil Litigation
